United We Stand, Divided We Fall
Author: Sullee J
Who has divided us? Entrenched thoughts inside us and dispersed fabricated reports to blind us? Who are these monsters? Captivated by the hunger of wickedness, strategizing since the beginning of time. A plan to corrupt humanity through their secret covenants, how insidious their minds. Who are the fathers of this evil? Who finds joy in the division and conquer of people? Who so practices with such decadence and hypocrisy? Are ye entertained of committing such heinous acts? Do you not think that He knows of all, which ye do? Have you become so arrogant and forgetful because of your earthly possessions that you feel as if you are not to return to your creator? Are you not the same person’s whom will deny of such actions when facing the truth on the day of recompense? Have you fell in disbelief? Into the magic of Iblis, who is aware of the truth himself, but finds excitement in turning you astray from it? Who is to blame, the ones who divide or the ones who fall into the trap and allow the division?
What has divided us, in such a way that we have been killing each other for centuries and forgot what the reason of existence even means? Does the word humanity, not have the word unity in it? If you believe it is religion, which segregates you from loving another person, then you are a part of the wrong religion. Religion teaches acceptance. “La Kum Dina Kum Waliya Deen” – To Each Their Own. It isn’t faith or the belief in a “God”, which divides us. Then what could it be? Is it money? Who owns the most property? Is it control? Is it the false media? Which tends to constantly divert our attention from the real by promoting the same things until we are slowly brainwashed into believing their version of the truth? Is it power? Can the role of playing “God” be so seductive to one’s mind that, the adrenaline rush from it allows them to feel as if they can do anything and not be accounted for their actions? Are you so caught up in your heedless ways?
It feels like humanity has been infected with some sort of epidemic, which has traveled and invaded weak souls. Struck the feeble minds and succeeded to reach hold. What have we done? Allowing ourselves to divide and separate into crowds? Only if we were open minded enough to see that unity; is the only way out. Who made you believe that it is a person’s socio-economic status, which should influence your decision on whether or not to associate with them? Who taught you to judge a book by its cover? Who taught you to assume a crook by his color? Who instilled in your hardheaded, slender minds to believe the gossip from there blistered tongues? Aren’t you aware of the fact that evil loves to entrap those who trap themselves mentally? Surely, the trapped are those who follow and swallow the captions of hypocrite captains, no sense in these. Where does it get you at the end of the day to hate or dislike another person because of what they look like? Or how much money they have or don’t have? What there religion is? Who they are related to?
Ask yourself! Are you only unified when in need? Are you otherwise disguised, and inside is greed? Are your intentions pure when congregated? The Quran states, “Their enmity among themselves is very great. You would think they were united, but their hearts are divided, that is because they are a people who understand not.” You can hide from the world, but not thyself. It frightens me because, if we can dissect ourselves from our own blood in today’s time over petty things, I worry about the pedagogy, which will guide the minds of our future generations. We need to open our eyes and come together as a unit, otherwise we will slowly evaporate as time continues, and nothing will change for the better. We need to learn to better ourselves, by helping better others. People tend to find humor in the filthiest things now days, and slowly what was once looked down at, is now becoming entertainment. How can we ever find a solution to a problem we keep ourselves from seeing? Look at the protests across the nation for #OccupyWallStreet. With the power of unity’s voice, I truly believe they will reach their goal and by the grace of God, may its outcome be for the best.
